ummm, I ride road saddles on mtb's but -I ride more XC position and I have narrow hips.
My current saddle is a bit scooped-wider @ the back, still a bit narrower than most I see on mtb.
If you jump a lot, a wider seats better coming off the drops.
XC, a wider seat rubs too much if its wide.
this seats o.k.
I've tried Selle Italia Nitrox, Velo Plush, WTB, Selle Italia again and then this.
XC does run a higher seat position, than say gravity racing. Different bikes though.
MTB is kinda an obsolete term. The classic ATB is closest to what is refered to as XC, IMO.
